While staff, faculty and students have the option of receiving the vaccine through UCLA, our supplies are currently limited, and the number of doses we expect to receive will likely be far fewer than the number of eligible employees.
Members of the Bruin community may find they’re able to schedule a vaccination sooner through the state, a local county public health agency, a local pharmacy or the city of Los Angeles. UCLA is encouraging all those eligible to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity, wherever they can.
- For those who have not yet received an invitation from UCLA Health, the fastest option may be to book an appointment through California’s My Turn portal, which provides information in eight languages and allows residents throughout the state to schedule a vaccination close to where they live. You can also access the state’s COVID-19 vaccination hotline at 833-4CA-4ALL (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–8 p.m., and Saturday–Sunday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.).
- In addition, UCLA employees who live in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County and Ventura County can continue to check their local public health department for vaccine availability. Residents of the city of Los Angeles can also book appointments through carbonhealth.com.
- Employees can also learn how their UC health plans are handling vaccinations by visiting the vaccine websites of Anthem, Health Net, Kaiser Permanente and UnitedHealthcare or by contacting their primary care provider.
